The Harvard University Association of Alumni in Singapore (HUAAS) was honoured and privileged to host ESM Goh Chok Tong on 16 September 2021 in its very first non-zoom/non-virtual event since COVID-19 happened. ESM Goh Chok Tong is a former Singaporean politician, who served as Prime Minister of Singapore from 28 November 1990 to 12 August 2004 and secretary-general of the People’s Action Party from November 1992 to December 2004. He was also a Member of Parliament representing Marine Parade for 44 years.
In a moderated closed-door session with almost 50 attendees, ESM Goh shared with our Harvard alumni key highlights in his corporate and political career, what inspired him to write his two-volume biography “Tall Order” and “Standing Tall”, and also generously imparted some important lessons and advice to our alumni. HUAAS looks forward to organising more in-person events in 2022, subject to COVID-19 Safe Management Measures in place then.
